I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very few, shorter work week than competition.

Cons

Overstocked stores, no control over merchandise being sent. Employee turnover is high because of low pay and high stress. Urban locations can not be kept clean, customers trash the stores faster than they can be straightened.

District manager insisted I return to work the day after my mothers funeral, which was 700 miles away and a 12 hour drive. This, after approving a three week leave. No respect is given to the employees, they are just another commodity to be used and discarded.

Advice to Management

Take time to work in the stores. Your money is made in the stores, not the corporate offices.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are able to get hired without experience.

    Cons

    Where do I start?
    -You need to do X amount of boxes in a certain amount of time, they don't care if you helped customers, if you can't fit anything else in the isle, if they called you to talk to you.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the appleseed.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing about working at dollar tree

    Cons

    I was a store manager I was underpaid for the time I spent working.. The expect you to work 60+ hours a week because you are salary, and if the DM visits you during your lunch you just dont get one. Their Insurance sucks, I paid more a month for the insurance than if I i had Just paid cash to go see my doctor, they don't cover annual checkups, you have to pay a portion out of your own pocket.Blood test cost $125 you pay out of pocket $89. great savings for paying over $400 a month for insurance. complaints? even as a customer they are not there to take care of you. One of my customers called on an merchandise placement issue for 6 months never got a reply.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be this... Take care of your people, don't hire out of despiration and get rid of all the drama full District managers
